Free tax prep and filing available for low-income employees

Emory employees whose household income was less than $48,000 in 2009 can get free income tax preparation under the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program.

Those who qualify can make appointments — no walk-ins — for assistance at the Goizueta Business School on Wednesday, March 10, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, March 11, from noon to 5 p.m. and Friday, March 12, also from noon to 5 p.m. Call 404.727.1396 to make the appointment. Participants will also need to confirm beforehand what documents must be brought to the appointment.

Emory’s Office of University and Community Partnerships (OUCP), with the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Community and Diversity, is managing the VITA campaign on campus this year, according to Sam Marie Engle, senior associate director of the OUCP.

“This is a nice complement to our work with the Atlanta Prosperity Campaign in which Emory students, volunteers and students enrolled in Professor David Frisvold's freshman seminar on the economics of poverty are trained by the IRS to provide income tax preparation services for clients of the International Rescue Committee in Decatur,” Engle says.
